iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

This project aims at the problem of obtaining water resources in arid regions. It applies the principle of plant aerial rooting, uses renewable resources such as local African bamboo as the outer frame, and recyclable membrane as the internal condensation device. When the air passes through the device, and water vapor is captured to obtain a clean water source. The overall simplicity, easy construction and low maintenance cost, can effectively reduce the problem of water scarcity in arid areas.

Very nice, an aesthetic yet highly practical project inspired by nature itself. Very thoroughly elaborated. The only critique that it is probably only feasible in wide-open areas, making the transportation of the water a residual problem.
